I have the standard non hid headlights and was considering buying hids, but couldn't justify splashing out on them at the moment(yes, i know they're not that expensive!). So i popped into halfrauds to get some decent bulbs, just to keep me going for the time being. I ended up buying some of their Extreme Brilliance bulbs ('Xenon gas technology for up to 90% more light!' part no. 477EB if you're interested) and i can say it's well worth doing. They light the road up just like hids. They're not cheap at £24.95 each! but they are buy one get one free at the moment so fill yer boots!
